RISE Homes
are leading residential property developers in Manchester, providing spacious and secure accommodation to rent at fair prices across the North and Midlands.

The company focuses on developing high quality rental accommodation that is excellent value for money.

RISE Homes (Formerly Housing Capital Property) is based in Stockport, and has specialised in the development of sustainable residential property to rent since 2012.

The residential property company has developed houses and apartments across six schemes in the North of England and has developed five biomass heating systems. Its Tribe Apartments scheme completed in 2015 won the prestigious global award for a Residential scheme from BREEAM (the world’s leading sustainability assessment code) and its development at The Mailbox, Stockport won the Best Residential Renovation/Redevelopment ‘Greater Manchester ‘at the 2020 International Property Awards.

RISE Homes has a further five developments in progress which will deliver an additional 640 apartments, all of which benefit from renewable energy.

RISE was formed by Nigel Rawlings, who has been involved in several large-scale residential build to rent projects in the North West, including Tribe Apartments in Ancoats, Maritime Apartments in Cumbria and Pomona Wharf in Castlefield. The British Strategic Investment Fund is a substantial fund that raised an additional £300m in 2020 and invests in forestry, renewables, and, through RISE Homes, in housing.

Having previously delivered schemes in Manchester and Cumbria, providing a total of 674 new apartments, RISE Homes completed high quality apartments for rent at The Depot, Manchester and both apartments and office space for rent at The Mailbox, Stockport in 2020. 2021 saw the completion of Greyfriars in Coventry which provided 85 new apartments for rent.

Previous Developments

Tribe Apartments – Rowlinson Construction

Comprising three 13 storey apartment blocks, Tribe Apartments was designed to address the chronic lack of high quality, energy efficient apartments available in Manchester’s private rental sector. The scheme was delivered through an innovative partnership with Manchester City Council and Rowlinson Construction. Three biomass district heating systems were installed at the Tribe Apartments which keeps the fuel costs and CO2 low.

In 2017 Tribe won the BREEAM Global award for a residential scheme. BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources and make for more attractive property investments.

Maritime Apartments

This site included 318 tenement apartments in four streets of four storey terraced buildings built to provide accommodation for railway builders and their families in Victorian times. They are listed buildings of historical significance in Cumbria. The properties which were acquired in 2014 were substantially refurbished and brought back into use. Two biomass district heating systems were installed at the Maritime Apartments which keeps the fuel costs and CO2 low.


The first phase of Manchester Waters, this site represented the development of 164 new build apartments in Castlefield. All were forward sold to Hermes for retention and letting under single ownership with their specification being based on Tribe. The project was introduced to Hermes and funding for the development phase was arranged via the Manchester Investment Fund and The Greater Manchester Pension Fund.
